FLORES BEACH & NATURE

FL – 03

As the name implies, this special tour package is aimed at exploring the unknown places in Flores. This time, we’ll take you to discover Maumere Bay Marine Park, the best underwater treat on mainland Flores. Dots of empty heavenly islands make up most of the park with bountiful intact corals adorning the crystal clear shallow water. Swim deep in the ocean and meet the super endangered clam species, the giant clams. Not get enough? Hop on your boat and sail toward the other side of the park.

 

What do you think about mangrove forest? Boring? Not interested? Well, we think it won’t happen here at Reroroja mangrove. It’s not merely plantation. It has an inspiring story of how the forest gives hope to local people after the tremendous tsunami in 1992. You’ll hear it right from the park pioneer. Ah, for the bonus, you’ll be able to enjoy real hidden beach at the end of the forest.

 

And in case you never visited the iconic Mt. Kelimutu, we’re also taking you there to witness yourselves the uniqueness of the three colored crater lakes. The water colors change based on season which will guarantee absolute amazement and unforgettable moment.
